Ingress premiered on Fuji TV's "+Ultra" programming block on October 17. In Japan, all the episodes premiered on Netflix at once in October. The show's English website describes the story:

Since he was little, Makoto had a strange power which enabled him to read the memories of objects he touched.
Hiding his uncontrollable power, he works as a special agent in the police force. One day, while investigating an explosion at a laboratory that researches a unknown substance called “XM”, he sees a mysterious memory.
The memory was from Sarah's ring, who was the sole survivor of the accident.
It was a sight of a person being swallowed into a red light and disappearing.
Makoto becomes embroiled in a massive conspiracy.
The battle for “XM”, a material that could affect human mind, starts now――

Yūhei Sakuragi (The Relative Worlds) directed the anime at Craftar with assistant director Yoshinari Irikawa, and Sōki Tsukishima (Final Fantasy Type-0: Change the World novels) and Tora Tsukishima wrote the scripts. Takeshi Honda (Beyond, Blue Submarine No. 6, Den-noh Coil, Millennium Actress) is credited with the original character designs. Maru Kobayashi was the animation director. English indie rock band Alt-J performed the anime's theme song "Tessellate."
